Miserable sound. The early solid-state preamp section is just dreadful. Not only would it not compare to any current integrated on the market that I have heard, it was bettered by every Mac piece at the time. The sonic signature is a smeary haze combined with the classic tube uncontrolled mid-bass. My experience is as a Mac collectory BTW, who has owned one. It is just a beautiful piece to look at though. You could easily have it converted to a power amp and hear the glory of all that excellent iron.
